Return to the SS Speke shipwreck – Phillip Island
I’ve visited the SS Speke shipwreck numerous times now. It’s a magical place at high tide with the rusty remnants of the wreck poking up through the surface of the shallow water. When the tide turns, the water quickly recedes and the wreck becomes fully exposed revealing it’s harsh rocky resting place.
To visit the SS Speke, park your car at the south end of Kitty Miller Rd. When you arrive on the beach turn left and walk around the point. The easiest way around the point is over the top and along the grassy cliff tops. There’s a well worn path to guide you to the Speke. The descent down the side of the cliff to the beach can be a bit slippery in wet conditions, ….which just adds to the adventure. 🙂

Interesting shipwreck. I like how you can make out the portals.
